Recently there have been six hundred and fifty cases of hepatitis confirmed among children across the world.

As of May 27, 2022, 222 cases were reported across the United States.

Health authorities in the U.S. are continuing investigations to find the causes of the outbreak, which are currently unknown.

In a press release on 18 May 2022, the Centre for Disease Control issued a statement relating to hepatitis cases among its child population. The CDC said,

“The CDC continues to work with health departments and clinicians nationwide to identify and investigate hepatitis of unknown cause impacting children.”

Investigations involving seventeen cases in California, Minnesota, and North Dakota, have now been possibly linked to allegedly contaminated strawberries.

CBS News reported yesterday that Federal food regulators indicated that packages of FreshKampo and HEB brand strawberries were likely linked to more than a dozen hepatitis cases in California.

The news outlet said:

“The FDA and Centres for Disease Control and Prevention, along with the Public Health Agency of Canada, Canadian Food Inspection Agency, and state and local partners, are investigating a multi-state outbreak of hepatitis A infections in the U.S. and Canada potentially linked to fresh, organic strawberries with the FreshKampo of HEB labels and purchased between March 5, 2022, and April 25, 2022.”

According to information from the World Health Organization (WHO)  released on May 27, the cases reported worldwide are of unknown etiology or cause, and are more clinically severe with a higher proportion of cases developing acute liver failure compared to previous cases of hepatitis detected in children.

According to the figures released, 75.4% of cases are in children under 5 years of age. Out of the 650 hepatitis cases, at least 38 (6%) children have required transplants, and 9 (1%) children have died.

According to the statement by the WHO just days ago,

“Most of the reported cases appear to be unrelated and extensive epidemiological investigations are underway to identify common exposures, risk factors or links between cases.”

Potential links made between cases in the U.S. and allegedly contaminated organic strawberries are not confirmed.

It is understood according to the CBS report that the strawberries were sold in March and April in Walmart, Trader Joe’s, and some other stores.

The causes of the other 633 cases worldwide remain unknown.

Further information relating to the growing worldwide cases of hepatitis cases among children was published in an article by AFIPN –
